171: Stan Gluzman – Raid the "money box"
It’s with great pleasure that I introduce to you, Stan Gluzman; an intraday equities trader at proprietary trading firmSeven Points Capital. Stan also heads up a small team of junior traders at one of the firms’ additional offices—outside of New York—in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. We discuss Stan’s path to consistent profitability as a prop trader, and then we get into specifics about the various strategies that Stan has traded in recent years—including the actual strategies that he implements today. I also ask Stan to share details about the various forms of analysis (statistical, fundamental and technical) that he uses to identify his best trading opportunities each day. And if you like this episode, you should go back and listen toMike Katz on episode 156. Because Mike’s the co-founder of Seven Points, and as you’ll hear, he was a mentor to Stan while he was still developing the skills to trade professionally.
170: Joshua Greenwald – The technology edge—how a team of options market makers found success in Asia
My guest on this episode is Joshua Greenwald, the CEO of a newly formed crypto derivatives exchange, LXDX. But the part that got me keen to speak with Josh, was the fact that he was a professional trader for more than 10-years prior… Josh started his career at DRW Trading in Chicago, he then left after six years and went on to co-found Greenlight Trading—a proprietary firm specializing in low-latency options market making, almost exclusively for Asian markets. Greenlight grew to be a team of approximately 30-people, before it was acquired. Over the next hour or so, we spoke a lot about Greenlight; the timeline from beginning development up to beginning to trade, the signals and the opportunities that they went after, and even the technology that they utilized (i.e. custom built FPGA chips). Towards the end, we discuss what’s involved in starting an exchange, the functionality and features that are missing from most crypto exchanges but common in traditional markets. And how LXDX ...
169: Jack Ma – Strategies die, skills survive
Jack Ma is a proprietary futures trader from Sydney and the head trader of Minter Capital—a firm he established this year, in which he currently mentors and backs a group of developing traders. Jack trades an “inventory style” in the market of Australian 90-Day Bank Bills—continually working structures around his expectations of yield strip movements, with minimal exposure to outright risk. He also trades Australian 3-year and 10-year Government Bonds, but predominantly during rolls (contract expiry). During this conversation, you’ll hear about Jack’s progression over the past 5-years—breakthroughs and lessons learned, plus his thoughts on trading as a skill (not a strategy), gaining an edge, mindset and competitiveness.
